WGL Million Dollar Shootout Begins Airing in the Number One T.V. Market

Award-Winning Golf Reality Show Features Spellbinding Finish

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - October 1, 2007) - WGL Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WGLT) announced today that the WGL Million Dollar Shootout (MDSO) will begin airing in the New York market today, on Comcast's SNY network. The entire seven-hour series will air on Monday evenings at 8:00 PM through November 12, 2007.

"SNY reaches 8.1 million households and will be a perfect lead-in for Monday Night Football in the sports crazed New York Market," said Mike Pagnano, CEO WGL Entertainment Holdings, Inc. "The airing of the MDSO in New England, Chicago and Michigan have been doing very well and we expect New York to draw the largest audience of all. This will be a major step toward a National airing in the winter of 2008."

The "WGL Million Dollar Shootout," shot at the Reunion Resort in Orlando, Fla. and hosted by John O'Hurley of "Seinfeld" and "Dancing With the Stars," features five teams of four golfers each. Foursomes consist of a captain, everyday golfers with a range of handicaps, along with ordinary heroes chosen by the American Red Cross.

One time every six holes, teams are allowed to call on professional lifelines to hit a shot for them. Celebrity golfers include the Golf Channel's "Big Break II" star Don Donitello, PGA Tour stars Fred Funk and Mark Calcavecchia, along with LPGA Tour stars Cristie Kerr ('07 - U.S. Open Champion), Carin Koch and Bernadette Luse.

The show's finale is among the most suspenseful rounds of golf ever filmed. The final round ends in a tie, requiring a sudden death playoff for the $1 million prize. For nine nail-biting holes, the teams battle for the big payoff.

"I have been to the Masters and the British Open and what I witnessed here today tops it all, PGA Tour or otherwise," said O'Hurley after the match. "Hollywood couldn't have scripted this any better."

WGL Entertainment Holdings, Inc., through its subsidiary WGL Entertainment, is the producer of the WGL Million Dollar Shootout Reality Television Series and several other made-for-T.V. sports entertainment events scheduled to be produced in 2008 and beyond.
